Who do I see on my campus about resources for student veterans?
The Office of Military and Veterans Services is here to assist you with your transition to Queensborough. If you have any questions/concerns about any part of the application, registration, or benefit/aid process please contact Veterans Services at (718) 281-5767.
During the Fall and Spring semesters, full time enrollment equals a minimum of 12 credits. Although remedial courses have 0 credits, they do have equated credits, which are counted toward full time enrollment. Course options and credits are reviewed during your Academic Advisement appointment. Students must be enrolled in courses that are required toward their curriculum in order to receive benefits.
If you drop or withdraw from a course during the semester, you must notify the Certifying Officials so that they can inform the VA of the changes. Failure to notify the Certifying Officials in a timely manner could result in an overpayment by the VA and reimbursement by the student.
Student veterans must receive a Tuition Deferment in order to prevent courses from being dropped while awaiting benefits. To obtain a Tuition Deferment, please contact the Certifying Officials on campus.
All questions or concerns regarding your bill should be directed to the Office of the Bursar, located in the Administration Building, Rm. 118.
